I’ve enjoyed my therapy so far. Melissa is easy to talk to and helps me with analyzing my thoughts and concerns.

Melissa has made such a difference in my life! She genuinely listens and cares without any judgment. She creates a safe space where I feel comfortable to share and she has really changed my perspective on therapy after having a few bad experiences with therapy in the past. She gives you the time to be open and doesn't try to interject just to fill the silence. She asks the right things and she has been really helpful for me. I couldn't recommend her more!

Melissa is like the compassionate BFF that I really needed. You can tell she’s really listening to you and thinking about what you say. She asks just the right questions to get you to think deeply about your situations and yourself. She’s easy to talk to and I can see myself opening up easily with her. She’s a great therapist.
